'Inspiring... proves anything is possible if you just believe and give it a go' Sun'Masses of heart... frank and funny' Melanie Sykes'Gritty and glorious' Ruth Field'Thrillingly honest and hopeful' Jools Walker*****************************************Rachel is a cyclist.

But she was never meant to be. After gaining mental strength and healing through running, she thought she was free.

Her depression alleviated, she came off antidepressants, winning races and collecting medals at marathons. But when an injury stopped the only thing helping to quiet the voices in her brain, Rachel found out what she is truly made of.

As body dysmorphia began to grip her in earnest, she knew she had to find a different way to kick her mental health demons for the sake of her sanity. So, she went down to her cellar, heaved out her old bike, and started pedalling. Like her life depended on it. A Midlife Cyclist is a tale of two wheels, across the Yorkshire Dales, Vietnam, Costa Rica and beyond, and a rider in search of peace. Includes exclusive Q&A with Jools Walker, aka Lady Velo*****************************************Praise for Running For My Life:'Heartwarming' Jo Pavey'Brave and inspiring' Ruth Field'I love Running For My Life' Louise Minchin
